The tunnel between the southern and western railway stations, the first metro line 5, the subway connection 2 with the Gödöllő HÉV, the complete replacement of the HÉV vehicle fleet and the Western route cover – the government decided to carry out these transfers Saturday according to a published decision.

Firstly, Csepel and Ráckeve HÉV to be built on the motorway will be taken underground at Kálvin tér – this is the first rate of line 5 of the metro – has been reported frequently, but nothing has happened so far, but with this government decision,. A feasibility study is also being carried out on the long-term link between these two lines HÉV and Szentendre HÉV – the second pillar of the well-known 5th metro.

The decision will also bring underground passenger trains between Kunszentmiklós-Tass-Kőbánya-Kispest and will be incorporated by subway 5. It also states the decision that a comprehensive renovation awaits the HÉV section between Békásmegyer and Szentendre.

They also plan a "rapid deployment" on the Gödöllő and Csömör HÉV lines, also recommending linking with the Örs leader, also with the long-awaited Metro Line 2, and calling for the creation of a new transport link to Törökőr with the 100a and Rákosfalva with the crossroads. metro Budapest XVII. on the periphery of the Rákoskeresztúr branch line.

This is what the 'full vehicle exchange' of HÉV lines contributes, they write. The average age of the 98 HVV car today is 42 years.

Green road to the southwest tunnel

In another decision, the government agrees to "renew the train station system that is worthy of Budapest's development level", ie the abolition of the main railway stations, and it intends to build a railway tunnel to be built between the south and the western railway station and the so-called central station of the Nyugati pályaudvar configuration.

Proposals were made to link Körvasút linked to the South Link Railway Bridge with new stops to adapt to the new concept of the railway network in Budapest and a development concept for the changing role of the Keleti railway station.

Can a new quarterly government come in?

In addition, although Fidesz protested during the planned Gyurcsány government regions around the West, it now seems justified that they still want to start with the western region.

This Decision requires a proposal to change the operation of the railway zones along the main railway stations and the import railway sections for the purposes of urban development and in particular the entire Southern Railway Station which will be gradually liberalized after the implementation of the development objectives together with the Western Railway Station and Keele railway station free areas along railway lines ".

The first phase of both programs will be implemented within the current financial framework of the EU Integrated Transport Operational Program and the maximum grant for public procurement procedures was set at 150 million guilders. The program will also be included as a priority for transport investments planned for the European Union programming period 2021-2027.

All this suggests that while in the current EU economic cycle the countryside in the future, Budapest may be the center of development.
